"Very similar to Visual Basic" I like the way VB (and Jabaco), when you double click the widget, creates a sub and puts the cursor right where you need to be coding for that widget or event. Make it do that and I'll use it for sure. Visual C# does the same thing and it makes life very easy. This is...

I'll have a complete visual designer (100% winapi based) ready for the community very soon. Very similar to Visual Basic. I really hope that once it's out that it will make creating Windows based applications much easier.

I would also like to see a new official FB release.

The best place to save your data would be in WM_DESTROY just prior to your PostQuitMessage. You could also have put it in WM_NCDESTROY. Some people put cleanup code immediately following the main message loop but that is usually frowned upon especially if you are interacting with GUI elements that m...

marcov, I agree totally that Win7 is really only an improved Vista. On my machine the stability is much improved over Vista and it doesn't seem as "sluggish". Maybe I just want to believe that Win7 is better and I have convinced myself of that because Vista was horrible on my machine. I have to say ...

Sounds like yet another lazy person wanting someone else to do all of the work. Don't just talk about any shortcomings, put some effort into changing the situation. This is open source and requires a bit of effort from everyone to keep it current. These doom and gloom posts about the demise of FB ar...

Thansk mathwizard44 and stylin, really appreciate the answers. However, some C code uses structs like the above in such a way as to have a variable-length array field, where the elements themselves are located in the same memory allocated for the struct itself stylin - I think that you're spot on wi...

How to convert this C code?

i have been converting some C code and i am not 100% sure how to handle code like the following:

Code: Select all

struct mystruct
{
    short items[1];
};


How is the "items[1]" converted to FB? Is it an array of 1 or 2 short values?

Hi SARG, Thanks for the new version. I will try it out more tomorrow when I have more time. In the meantime, I think that maybe you can modify your resource file to eliminate the hard coded paths to the images. Try the following: 1 ICON "fbdebugger.ico" 1000 BITMAP DISCARDABLE "./butt...
